INDIANAPOLIS--The Indianapolis Metro Police Department has released a summary video of a shooting where one of the officers was wounded last month.
They posted the video online. It shows body-camera video from the night Officer Thomas Mangan was shot in the neck Feb. 27. Mylik Hill is accused of shooting Mangan and has been charged in the case.
Body-worn camera footage shows Mangan and his field training officer, Daniel Majors, telling Hill to put his hands out of the window as Hill gets out of a car. Hill ignores the command and starts running.
Mangan and Majors tell Hill to stop and chase him on foot when he does not. As Majors is running after Hill, Majors tells Hill twice or stop reaching or he will shoot him.
Multiple shots are fired. As Majors is shooting at Hill, he yells “drop the gun” twice.
Private security camera footage captured Hill shooting at officers and then running east in the direction of South State Avenue.
Other security cameras showed Hill jumping over a homeowner’s fence on Dawson Street, where he was eventually found by police.
The Marion County Prosecutor’s Office eventually charged Hill with attempted murder, six counts of resisting law enforcement, criminal mischief, and possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon.
Mangan suffered damage to his laryngeal cartilage (Adam’s apple) and voice box. He was released from the hospital after nearly two weeks.
